Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy Versus Ureteroscopy for Management of Pediatric Nephrolithiasis in Upper Tract Urinary Stones: Multi-Institutional Outcomes of Efficacy and Morbidity

As the incidence of pediatric nephrolithiasis rises, understanding the efficacy and morbidity of surgical treatment options is critical. Currently, there is limited comparative data assessing shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) and ureteroscopy (URS) outcomes in children.

This article highlights the pathogenesis of kidney stones, the risk factors for their formation, and common complications. The article concludes with management guidelines for nephrolithiasis and when primary care physicians should refer patients to nephrology or urology. In light of the current opioid epidemic, salient points for nonopioid treatment as initial treatment of nephrolithiasis likewise are discussed.

Dayton's largest hospital campus has repeatedly ranked among the nation's best sites for urology care. A new investment in next-generation technology could push that designation even higher. Premier Health, one of the region's largest health systems; and Dayton Physicians Network (DPN), a medical group with more than 350 employees, have acquired a new system by Israeli medical device company Lumen is Ltd. that provides advances in treatment for kidney stones and enlarged prostate. The equipment,…

This study compared the adhesive capabilities of CaOx monohydrate (COM) crystals with various sizes ( 80 μm). Crystal-cell adhesion assay showed size-dependent increase of COM crystal adhesion onto epithelial cell surface using the larger crystals. Identification of apical membrane proteins that could bind to COM crystals by tandem mass spectrometry (nanoLC-ESI-ETD MS/MS) demonstrated size-specific sets of the COM crystal-binding proteins. Among these, numbers of known oxalate-binding proteins and COM crystal receptors were greatest in the set of the largest size (>80 μm). Atomic force microscopy (AFM) revea...
